    I have a walker GHS and i'm having a problem with the alarm that goes off when the hopper is full. Today it started staying on and won't turn off, no matter if the hopper is completely empty. Any suggestions on troubleshooting?

    I am having trouble with my sensor NOT going off. If you reach in the box and push it around really hard it will sound but with just grass it doesnt. Does anyone know how to adjust this or is this something that has to be replaced? Sometimes I don't hear the grass flow sound change then I have to dig out the ghs and thats no fun!

    does the chute inside hopper turn ok? or at all. it might be the contacts on the bottom of hopper right behind the seat.

    I had my dealer take out my alarm and replace it right above the seat next to my ear so i can hear it better...they did it for free...
